Rakhi special: Sibling Love Lessons from Bollywood

Last updated on: August 23, 2018 17:18 IST

There's no love like the love for a sibling, and Bollywood sure does agree, says Sukanya Verma.

'Phoolon Ka Taaron Ka Sabka Kehna Hai Ek Hazaron Main Meri Behna Hai,' raved Dev Anand in Hare Rama Hare Krishna.

'Mera Bhaiya, Mere Chanda, Mere Anmol Ratan. Tere Badle mMain Zamane Ki Koi Cheez Na <oon,' sighed Meena Kumari in Kaajal.

Sibling love in Hindi cinema isn't one to hold back on emotion.

From bantering brothers to sacrificing sisters, we've seen it all.

This Raksha Bandhan, Sukanya Verma lists all the lessons we learned about bhai-bahen ka pyaar at the movies.

 

Dil Dhadakne Do

Dil Dhadakne Do

Never rub your wife's brother or his precious pooch the wrong way.

She WILL eventually dump you.

Brother=1. Brother-in-law=0

 

Secret Superstar

Secret Superstar

Nothing compares to the warm, fuzzy feeling of discovering that annoying, pestering baby brother of yours is actually working super hard to fix your smashed laptop with rolls and rolls of brown tape.

 

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag

Every little sacrifice a big-hearted sister makes for her chhota bhai will be rewarded in gold when he grows up to become a legend in his profession.

 

Dhanak

It's okay to love different Khans so long as your hearts are united in affection, not rivalry.

 

Race 3

Blood is thicker than water. And 'bro' works better than 'bhai.'

 

Darr

A bat and a sense of humour come in handy when defending the terror-stricken sister from her crazy stalker.

 

Shahenshah

Oh the extents a sibling will go to amuse (and annoy) his poor, pakaooed sis.

 

Dear Zindagi

Dear Zindagi

Sibling pyaar is based on trust, fun and ice cream.

 

Prem Ratan Dhan Payo

Prem Ratan Dhan Payo

Money builds walls among some siblings.

Money breaks them too.

For best returns, invest in Prem.

Or should we say Bhai?

 

Jodhaa Akbar

Jodhaa Akbar

Teaching sisters the importance of self-defence is so much cooler than overprotective big brothers.

 

Dance Dance

Who knows the art (and agony) of twinning better than siblings?

 

Tridev

Tridev

Forget rakhi, the daredevil Bollywood brother will rescue his darling bahen from the clutches of the villain and wrap her dupatta around his neck all year round.

 

Queen

Big brothers aren't the only ones to rally around their heartbroken sister.

Kid brothers feel their plight just as much.

 

Josh

Sibling love, even when as unbelievable as Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan playing twins, wins against all odds.
